deficit to china being $29.8 billion per month. that is just one country. you start to add up all the trade deficit that we have with all of these different trading partners over the years, i am sure that it is close to about $1 trillion per year. >> thank you for the comments. let's go to sarasota next. caller: good afternoon. the way that i look at it, as a 74-year-old professional pharmacist with a minor in economics, the reason i am independent is because republicans and democrats cannot seem to get it together. the biggest problem that we have now is the reason why we cannot do what we are supposed to do for the entire country. one middleman adnan grover norquist. someone who was never even elected. here is a man that has caused all the problems. all of the republicans have signed this pledge, which to me is unconstitutional. without him, we would not be talking today. >> salem, oregon, republican line. you are on the air. caller: good morning. as a college student, and i have listened to every single caller, this is an embarrassing day for our country. i am a first-time job

not create any jobs. as far as china is concerned we do not hit that high of a tariff on their imports. i believe it is a lot higher. the whole thing was steve jobs. he treated the apple computer in his garage. when he got successful theme of his company over to china giving chinese people jobs. if steve jobs was born in china he would not even be able to create the apple computer. we just do not do enough for the people of this country. the people who are position to create jobs do not reinvest in the country. i do not think they should get tax breaks. if you want to give these corporate giant tax breaks given to those who want to invest in the country and create jobs. for a lower than the american businessmen. guest: i understand your frustration. part of it is the corporate tax .ode clearly needs to fix it a lot talk about fixing a and a revenue neutral way. it does not help lowering future deficits any easier. there are some things need to change. in general we need to realize that if we set our country on the bike path making the right investments in -- the right path making investme

said that there were 970 adoptions last year. china and ethiopia had more. and a little more than 1700 from ethiopia, a big reason americans adopt from other countries is the amount of children available. i will bring in the adoptive parents of a russian child, and was planning to adopt a second child from russia. kurt and ann, sorry i'm emotional right now. >> we understand. >> how far did you go in the adoption process? >> well, for this one, we have been working on it for about a year, and we were waiting for our invitation to travel over to be matched with a child. >> and? >> now, it looks like it's coming to a screeching halt? >> and i said you want your little nugget and you said you want your second one. right? >> yeah, we have one at home, we had such a great experience with our first russian adoption. we were in st. petersburg and the process was about nine months from the start of paperwork and the paperwork is tremendous. it really is. the parents go through a lot, from the fingerprinting to the background checks to local russian requirements, so, it's just a great process.
